According to Fr. William Meninger,  “The Enneagram is a tool for personal transformation. The two virtues most necessary for the spiritual journey are humility, a knowledge of the truth about yourself, and love, an experience of the love of God.  Without the former, we cannot begin the journey. Without the latter, we cannot finish it.  The Enneagram is an ancient tool with modern overtones which aids us in accomplishing both.  It involves a personality profile which uncovers our unconscious, addictive, and mechanical motivations which weaken and sometimes completely overcome our free will.  Its origins are found in virtually every mainline philosophy or religion which seeks human understanding as foundational for understanding the divine.”

About Fr. William

In 1963 Fr. William entered St. Joseph’s Abbey in Spencer, Massachusetts.  While there he developed  a contemplative prayer method based on the 14th-century classic treatise The Cloud of Unknowing.  It has led to the prayer method called Centering Prayer.  Fr. William moved from St. Joseph’s Abbey to St. Benedict’s Monastery in 1979, where he has served as prior and novice director.  His books include works on various religious themes, including a commentary on The Cloud of Unknowing.  He gives retreats, lectures and workshops on centering prayer, forgiveness, and the Enneagram in the US and abroad.  Fr.
